As you know, you and I have conducted business in space in which you have bought products listed for sale by myself, and for that I am grateful.

I do not have a strategy as such. I have aimed to offer products at a price attractive enough to tempt a buyer, but at the same time to make it worth my while in doing so, it is therefore a balancing act. The key components for me in setting prices are the exchange rate for GC/Cash transactions, the price of the product on the markets to which I had access to and whether or not those products are available to buy and sell on world markets or only available in space or via contracts. I'm not currently aware of the present exchange rate but let's say hypothetically that the current rate is 235B for 1 GC. With that in mind, selling 200B worth of product which is openly available on world markets is attractive to a buyer faced with shortages and not attractive to me. Likewise in the same scenario regarding exchange rate, 20B of a product also openly available and in surplus is not attractive to the buyer but is to me, hence the need for balance. I have sold Weapon Grade Uranium and Conventional Missiles at a premium price because they are not available for general sale and also because there were no existing offers by other players when I made my offers available. Another factor to consider is that using docking stations which are a requirement for buying and selling in space cost GCs and although not implemented yet, products such as Spacecraft Maintenance Units will soon become an additional cost to those who wish to trade in space.

I hope this is of use to you and I wish you happy trading in space.

I'm selling Nuclear Missile Batteries at 0.30 GC each on Carina if you're interested. This is a VERY reasonable price, no? My previous competitor was trying to sell at 1.00 GC per battery.
